    Former Secretary of Labor Bob Reich, on behalf of MoveOn, warns Democrats what will happen if Republicans take control of the Senate: they may use a “tricky, little-known maneuver” to “ram through” their “right-wing policies” with only 51 votes, instead of the 60 votes “usually required” in the Senate. Here he is:Reconciliation

    At the Shadow Party’s "Take Back America" conference in Washington on June 3, 2004, following a glowing introduction from Hillary Clinton, George Soros stepped to the podium to explain to the audience that when it came to electoral politics in the USA, he was a newcomer. Only his outrage over Bush’s invasion of Iraq had stirred him to get involved in the partisan struggle. "[I]t is the first time that I feel that I need to stand up and do something, and become really engaged in the electoral process in this country," Soros said.[1] This was far from the truth,...

    The liberal advocacy group MoveOn.org is demanding that Democratic Kentucky Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes take down an ad that uses the term “illegal aliens.” “This latest TV ad from Alison Lundergan Grimes is deeply upsetting. Grimes seems to be forgetting that we are a nation of immigrants that has continually strived to honor all the hard-working people who aspire to the American Dream,” Ilya Sheyman, MoveOn.org’s executive director, said in a statement. “It’s deeply troubling that Grimes would stoop this low in order to try to defeat [Senate Minority Leader Mitch] McConnell, and she needs to take this offensive...

    ~~snip~~ I was curious to see how substantial a demonstration MoveOn could turn out against the hated (on the Left) John Boehner (“We need a big crowd downtown!”). I also wondered how the demonstrators would transport a recliner to the Minneapolis Club, and whether they would be able to get close enough to Boehner to “present” the recliner to him. So I showed up. The demonstration was even weaker than I expected. The local police precinct had told the club’s manager to expect around 200 protesters, based on “chatter.” I counted 16 quiet, dispirited liberals

    The president's expansion of the U.S. military mission in Iraq is conjuring up two dirty little words for anti-war Democrats: Mission creep. Just two months ago, when Obama announced he was going to send up to 300 American troops to Iraq, he emphasized that they would only have an advisory, non-combat role. On Friday, however, U.S. fighters bombed terrorist targets in northern Iraq. Hours before, the president had announced he was authorizing such strikes as well as the airdropping of aid to Iraqi refugees stranded on a mountaintop. The White House has stressed that the two missions — the airstrikes...

It is beyond despicable for Democrat Party groups to support a terrorist organization,” said Stockman. “The Democrat Party group MoveOn should apologize for hosting supporters of kidnappers and terrorists.” The petition, “Reject ‘Terrorist’ Designation for Boko Haram” was posted in 2012 and began gaining more signatures from Democrat Party activists after the group kidnapped 230 Nigerian girls to sell into...

Jay Dardenne sent a cease-and-desist order to MoveOn on Thursday, asking the advocacy organization to take down a billboard along Interstate 10 that parodies Louisiana’s “Pick your Passion” tourism slogan. The billboard, which mentions Jindal by name, is critical of the governor and legislators’ decision not to expand the state Medicaid program under federal health care reform. “LOU!SIANA Pick your passion! But hope you don’t love your health. Gov. Jindal’s denying Medicaid to 242,000 people,”...

MoveOn bemoaned in an email to supporters the “troubling trend” of increased energy production, which is reducing the U.S. trade deficit, creating well-paying jobs, stabilizing global energy prices, and undermining the economic engine behind some of the world’s most repressive regimes. MoveOn announced the creation of a new effort called “#FrackingFighter,” which “seeks to slow down the fracking boom that is anticipated to occur across the United States in 2014 and beyond.” The...

    Dear MoveOn member, Breaking news: Mitt Romney just picked tea party hero Paul Ryan as his running mate. And Romney may have just committed political suicide. Paul Ryan is the author of the most extreme right-wing budget ever proposed in Congress. He wants to dismantle Medicare, privatize Social Security, and cut taxes for millionaires while raising taxes on the middle class.1 Simply put, the policies Paul Ryan stands for are politically toxic. But here's the thing: Paul Ryan isn't just a extremist—he's young, smart, and charming. The media constantly describe him as looking like "the boy next door." He's the...

Further, the attorney for the ATF special agent in charge in Phoenix, who oversaw Fast and Furious, lashed out at Republican congressional leaders, calling their report a "political witch hunt" aimed less at finding fault than pinning Democrats with negative political fallout from Fast and Furious.

MoveOn had called Charles Barron, a candidate for a seat in Brooklyn, “unfit to serve” in advance of a June 26 primary. The grassroots group detailed a string of Barron’s inflammatory comments in an email to supporters before the primary, but now says that was the sort of divisive attack the group should avoid. “The email was all too reminiscent of the kind of...

    White House Chief of Staff Jacob Lew touted the Supreme Court’s ruling upholding the president’s healthcare reform bill Sunday and warned Republicans to “move on” and drop efforts to undo the legislation. “I don’t think the American people want to have this debate again,” said Lew about GOP efforts to repeal the health bill on “Fox News Sunday.” “I don’t think they want to be pulled back into decades of debate to get to where we are. We now have a law, the law is constitutional, we should implement it.” The high court on Thursday dealt a blow to Republicans...

    In a move rivaling Patton's march through the Rhineland, MoveOn has called in the calvary, albeit a single SUV with a dog strapped to the roof.This, coupled with their current onslaught of YouTube videos, and banners flying from airplanes, should surely bring the GOP to their knees!Liberals smell blood in the air. Mitt Romney and the 1% are teetering on the precipice of defeat and all that's needed is a mechanized unit to once again bring peace to the Nation!Now is the time for action...now is the time for all Progressives to rise! …My God, I actually pity those poor Conservatives we're going up against. My God, I do…we're going to cut out their living guts and use them to grease the treads of our SUV’s…We are advancing...
  • Email: MoveOn.org whining about Scott Walker's out-of-state money (isn't that what they're doing)

    Below is an email from Mary Magnuson, a MoveOn member in Brookfield, Wisconsin, who created a petition on SignOn.org, the nonprofit site that allows anyone to start their own online petition. If you have concerns or feedback about this petition, click here. Dear MoveOn member, As a Wisconsin progressive working day and night for the recall of Scott Walker, I'm shocked: The Democratic National Committee still isn't giving financial support to the recall fight in Wisconsin. After more than a year of grassroots efforts, Wisconsin citizens have accomplished more than anyone thought possible. We now have a Democratic challenger to...

    Former Republican Rep. Tom Davis told The Hill newspaper: “The middle is getting squeezed,” but his comment vastly understates the crisis in the capital. Activists in both parties have declared war on moderates. The ideological gap between the two parties is widening rapidly. Paralysis is pervasive. Political scientist Keith Poole of the University of Georgia, who studies voting patterns, told the National Journal: “We are clearly as conflicted as we’ve been since 1905. The parties are, I think, completely dysfunctional and incapable of acting on major policy.” The National Journal reports that as recently as 1999, more than half of...
  • MoveOn’s Quest to Outlaw the Term “Illegal Immigrant” [claims its hate speech - barf]

    Just when you would think that the far Left Obama booster organization MoveOn.org could not get any more ridiculous, it sinks to ever lower levels of absurdity. The latest example involves MoveOn’s push to render the phrase “illegal aliens” or “illegal immigrants” hate speech. A video posted last week at MoveOn.org’s website charges that calling illegal immigrants “illegal” fits the definition of a hate crime and calls for the word “illegal” to be abolished when describing individuals entering the United States illegally. They would prefer using adjectives such as “undocumented” immigrants or “unauthorized” immigrants.

    Last night Liz Butler and Joy Cushman of MoveOn.org hosted a “National Major Actions” conference call to discuss with fellow left-wing activists a slough of direct actions in the coming months. Among those plans are a series of continuous disruptions and demonstrations against banks, corporations, and anyone they deem to be members of the “1 percent.” The call aimed to motivate activists looking to dig in deeper to their commitment to dismantling the American economy. Actions began yesterday by shutting down the Wells Fargo’s share-holder meeting in San Francisco and were touted on the call. According to the L.A. Times,...

    Who is Rashad Robinson? And why has his fringe, race-baiting organization been able to pressure several major corporations into abandoning a pro-limited-government legislative association -- all for a few cheap social-justice brownie points? Conservative consumers need to get informed, get active and stand their ground against free speech-squelching progressive activists who have demonized the American Legislative Exchange Council. This isn't just a battle over ALEC. It's a war against the left's shakedown artists taking aim at our freedoms of speech and association. ALEC, as I reported last week, is the four-decade-old policy organization of state legislators and like-minded business people...

    ...........The other week we profiled how this game was being played with business executive Mark Stevens. Stevens' business -- and Stevens himself -- was abruptly inundated with threatening calls and e-mails demanding he remove his company's advertising from Rush's show as broadcast in the New York area -- or else. An incensed and decidedly heroic Stevens not only doubled down on his advertising as a result, he went on Fox News to directly take on the thugs -- saying in part that what was happening to him was part of a "Battle for America." Stevens is right -- this is...

    On Monday, New York Times reporter Brian Stelter wrote that Rush Limbaugh would be leaving his Philadelphia affiliate WPHT, a 50,000-watt “clear channel” AM station, for the WKDN 106.9 FM signal in that market, . Some on the political left had applauded the move as a victory. A press release sent out by Brad Tucker of Fenton Communications on Tuesday suggested the move occurred because of pressure from MoveOn.org, whose effort was part of a “Get Rush Limbaugh off the air at AM 1210 WPHT” petition which had “received 3,779 signatures.” But Limbaugh spokesman Brian Glicklich disputed that claim, telling...

    The actual title is: Now Media Matters is tied to MoveOn, ACORN. See who is one of the biggest donors to anti-Fox News activist group It's too long to fit in the space for the title. One of the single largest donors to the embattled Media Matters for America is a controversial far-left clearinghouse that funds groups like MoveOn.org, ACORN and a litany of antiwar organizations, KleinOnline has learned. The organization in question, the Tides Foundation, is funded in part by billionaire George Soros, himself a prominent Media Matters donor. Tides functions as a money tunnel where major leftist donors...
